Signs of a Wasp Problem

If you have a swarm of Wasps on your property there are some obvious reasons to get them removed fast.

Wasps are seasonal pest insects, with their queen emerging from hibernation in spring, rapidly start building the nest and the wasp queen lays her first eggs. Nests are often excavated in dry soil or built in roof gaps. Although recent years have seen wasps becoming active in early April or May, the first worker wasps usually emerge in early summer months, usually in June.

Autumn is mainly the mating season between the males and queens and sees the social degeneration of the nest, as the workers may not return. During the cold season, the queen hibernates and all the males and worker wasps die. The complex nest is made redundant and never re-used, although it has been known for an adjacent nest to be built, so extra attention should be paid when removing old nests, especially during active seasons.

  • Spot the nest! – this is usually the best indicator of an infestation.
  • Live or dead insects
“First of all i would like to say a big thank you for your efficient service. Prokill turned up in the rain and just got on with the job of getting rid of the wasps. He had all the right equipment and clothing and even took the time to wash away any excess powder with the hoe pipe. He told us all about the guarantee and if they didn’t go away that he would come back free of charge to erradicate them. The price was what you said on the phone with all the paperwork and friendly discussion. We were very surprised to go into the garden the next day and not a single wasp to be seen, alive or dead. Brilliant service.”

The Common Wasp (Vespa vulgaris)

The most direct method of treating wasps is to destroy the nest; often an easy task for the trained pest control professionals, when they can be located/reached.

When confronted with commercial / Industrial wasp problem when the nest cannot be located, the wasp population can be reduced by the use of professional traps.

Insecticidal baits are placed to intercept the wasp on its way to and from the feeding site. These traps will catch adult wasps before they become an annoying pest. Wasp traps work very well in pub gardens, picnic area and other external eating areas.
